I wish I were a kid in Wisconsin….

OK, well I don’t wish that too often. It’s chilly up north! But, look at what I found online:

ThedaCare “Empower Me!” Summer Camp for Kids with ADHD

This medical center puts on summer camps for kids with ADD that expose them to a lot of different activities and help them learn techniques to manage their ADD.

Activities include:

  • Art Projects
  • Music Therapy
  • Yoga
  • Therapy Dog
  • Karate
  • A day with horses
  • Computers
  • Ropes Course

I love how the schedule (here – PDF) has little down time, and a lot of variety – sounds so fun! I took Tae Kwon Do as a kid and my parents said it helped me learn discipline (well, a little) and wore me out so they didn’t have to deal with so much hyperactivity! I also love music, art, computers, and animals, so I would have totally loved this camp.

    I think I would love a camp like this, even as an adult. *giggle* That schedule looks like a lot of fun.

    Yeah, seriously! I hope they start one in my area so I can volunteer :)
